Tea Slows Prostate Cancer Significantly -
Recent Study Shows
Budwig often recommended green tea to her
ill patients. This widely known beverage has
been used for centuries for its many healing
properties. Now modern researchers are rediscovering
its healing benefits, especially for cancer.
In a recent study by the Feist-Weiller Cancer
Center of the LSU Health Sciences Center,
researchers found that the active components
in green tea significantly reduced prostate
cancer markers in men who consumed it. These
markers are related to prostate cancer progression,
showing that the compounds in green tea may
be helpful in the prevention and treatment
of this type of cancer.
are many beneficial compounds found in green
tea, but the researchers in this study focused
on a substance known as "Polyphenon E." Polyphenon
E is a trademarked product created by extracting
and concentrating the beneficial antioxidants
in green tea. This study involved 26 men ranging
from 41-72 years of age who were given 4 capsules
of Polyphenon E, daily, for an average of
34.5 days. The 4 capsules were roughly equivalent
to the antioxidants in 12 cups of green tea.
are many other researchers from all over the
world looking into the use of green tea compounds
for cancer treatment and prevention. Researchers
like James A. Cardelli, Ph.D., the professor
and research director at the Feist-Weiller
Cancer Center believes that this green tea
substance shows promise for cancer patients.
These same researchers are now teaming up
with scientists from Columbia University in
New York to study these compounds for breast
extensive research is needed for "conclusive"
evidence in general, Dr. Budwig had been collecting
information for decades based on the treatment
outcomes of her many patients. Budwig's methods
included vast amounts of natural, plant-based
antioxidants from sources like green tea,
as well as vegetable and fruit juices. And
her use of natural antioxidants was in addition
to her core treatment method, which is the
proper application of Flax Oil taken
internally and externally.
her studies, this creates hugley beneficial
effects for the body, especially for cellular
respiration, which is closely related to diseases
like cancer. The many benefits she describes
are too vast to discuss in this article. You

information is being released everyday about
the role of diet and healthy lifestyle in
degenerative diseases like cancer. And many
of these studies are directly related to Dr.
Budwig's Oil-Protein Diet and her remarkable
scientific works. More and more scientists
are re-discovering the natural substances
that heal and prevent (often serious) diseases.
Luckily for us, these healing substances are
widely available and can easily be incorporated
into our daily lives.
